In less than 90 days, each of us, as members of The Native Sons and Daughters of Greater Kansas City, will have the opportunity to support the mission of our organization --- the historic preservation of the unique and rich heritage of the greater Kansas City metropolitan area.
The annual Outstanding Kansas Citian award and dinner is the only fundraiser held each year to support the production and placement of historic markers, cash awards to students participating in the National History Day program in Kansas and Missouri, the archiving and preservation of historic documents, and assisting museums and historic sites throughout the metropolitan area.

You can help our eight-decade tradition continue and grow. Our members volunteer to chair and staff 13 Community Service Committees -- projects that are mainly accomplished by hard work, but sometimes need financial support to finish. Nine Standing Committees are also chaired and staffed by our members, and they often incur expenses to complete their work.
Membership dues take us a long way, but can't -- as they might say in baseball lingo -- get us to the home plate. We count on a successful Outstanding Kansas Citian event to, again borrowing from baseball, hit a grand slam and bring all our projects home.
It's hard to imagine an Outstanding Kansas Citian event that can rival the past two years with Julia Irene Kauffman and Marilyn Maye in the grandeur of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. However, overlooking the manicured field and the stadium architecture from high above home plate in the Kia Diamond Club at Kauffman Stadium will leave you awestruck.
